I think the forums where hacked the other day. I would suspect that
being the reason for the maintenance, as they usually put up notices
in advance before taking it down for upgrading etc.

Well that doesn't apply to all of us. I can sign it as an individual
with an affiliation, but I can't even pretend to represent my
"company"... there are all sorts of hoops to jump through to get an
official "endorsement" which frankly ain't gonna happen. So let's make
sure it's worded in such a way that would allow individuals to sign
without claiming to be any kind of official representative.

Thanks...

Dear All,
I would be more than glad to sign off this letter, I could also try to
push other companies to do that since I know many who are actually
using either Jai or Jai Imageio (or both).

Side note, there are alredy a certain numbers of Open Source porjects
trying to go beyond the current problems/limitations of JAI and JAI
Imageio:

- JAI-tools http://code.google.com/p/jai-tools/
- ImageIO-Ext https://imageio-ext.dev.java.net/
- jrawio http://jrawio.rawdarkroom.org/
- twelvemonkeys-imageio https://twelvemonkeys-imageio.dev.java.net/

this means that there is interests in these technologies around the
world and also some good momentum that we should try and leverage on.

Ciao,
Simone.

Thanks for this piece of FUD, for all we know there is nothing sinister
about this, or do you know otherwise?

I suppose that Ken just wants to prevent us from thinking that Oracle
has dismantled everything at Java.Net - it actually is that there's just
an extraordinary maintainance. Recently, the NetBeans website underwent
a major change (moved to a new farm) and there were some missing pages
during the operation; a few people feared - again - that it was Oracle
shutting down the project.

SInce the current news from the NYT are that the EU is going to give
green light soon (http://blogs.sun.com/claudia/entry/oracle_sun_finally
) I think it's a
good time to write that open letter. I can use my links as a member of
the NetBeans Dream Team to try to address the correct Sun official for
delivering, but I'd say that also publishing it at DZone could have an
impact. I'm sure that having a list of corporates currently using JAI
would help to demonstrate the usefulness of the API.

On my side, and as a representative of my company, I am certainly willing to
sign such an open letter to Sun.

SInce the current news from the NYT are that the EU is going to give green
light soon (http://blogs.

sun.com/claudia/entry/oracle_sun_finally) I think it's a good time to write
that open letter. I can use my links as a member of the NetBeans Dream Team
to try to address the correct Sun official for delivering, but I'd say that
also publishing it at DZone could have an impact. I'm sure that having a
list of corporates currently using JAI would help to demonstrate the
usefulness of the API.

I need to check with my Company but I see no reason why we could
not sign it and indeed I personally feel we should.
